I just put together a brand new computer, it's a 3.2GHz P4 with Socket 775
Prescott. The motherboard is an intel D915GAVL which I was told my microsoft
is compatable with the CPU. I was originally having issues with the CPU so I
sent it back, but now problems are still occuring. When I turn on the
computer, I can get into the bios and whatever else. but only for about a
minute or 3 minutes at most, then the computer will out of the blue lock up
completely. I got into the bios hardware monitor and watched it as this
happends, the temperature appears to be perfectly find and had no problems
when it locked up. I do not know why this is happening but i'm hoping someone
can help me out. I can't even install Windows XP without it locking up.


Also. When I was able to get up the windows install screen before it locked
up, it had an error, which i'd assume was because of the SATA hard drive.
it's a Western Digital WD2000JD Drive, what do I do to let windows see it? I
can see the drive in the system bios on boot.

You went to the wrong place for CPU/Motherboard compatibility - MS makes
software and some miscellaneous hardware, such as mice, keyboards, joysticks
and the such - not major hardware.

There is good source that will be good for you to research:
http://www.intel.com since both hardware pieces are Intel, a P4 Socket 775
Prescott CPU and motherboard.

Just a guess, either something is not connected or configured correctly,
again a good reason to review your motherboard and CPU information, either
the physical documentation that accompanied both pieces of hardware or
online, at the site I mentioned above.
